Package: evolution-ews
Version: 3.4.4-1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?

I am using evolution-ews to access my university email which uses Office
365. I have sucessfully managed to get it working on Fedora 18 so I thought
I would give it a go on my Debian box.

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or

After setting-up everything using the Evolution wizard, my mail syncs fine
but trying to access both the calendar and the address book results do not
appear to work.

   * What was the outcome of this action?

- For the address book, I get the following error message:

This address book cannot be opened.

This either means that an incorrect URI was entered, or the server is

Detailed error message: Invalid source

- For the calendar

Error loading calendar

Invalid source

   * What outcome did you expect instead?

On Fedora 18 (evolution 3.6.x), I can access the address book either by
typing in the search bar or looking in the pre-cached entries, whereas the
calendar successfully displays my meetings. IMO, without the calendar and
address book working, this package becomes useless. I can get mail
synchronization via IMAP instead, which Thunderbird/Icedove can do equally

Let me know if you need me to perform some more debugging.
